Answering questions was fine, but her makeup is so bad. It seems like her makeup inspiration is Kanadajin3 - the clownish blush, eyelashes reaching the eyebrows, overload of white glitter under the eye Or they are both just going overboard with the ultra-fashionable-totally-like-Japanese-girls-do-it makeup.
What's with the mega brightness? Venus should finally embrace not being as pale as snow. She is still pale but far from the palest and she never will be unless she does a skin lightening or something. And in makeup videos such mega brightness is just awkward because you can't see anything. Her Japanese sounds great. Even if she doesn't have a large vocabulary yet, her pronunciation is on point.
Honestly, she would become interesting and a trend again if she just goes back to the photoshop style that got her popular in the first place. Just delete all the ugly alien baby photos and start with beautiful photos again.
It was a very nice video, and in comparison to her usual stuff it was amazingly non-boring. A thing I personally really liked was that her usual intro of Tay-face talking and showing a bit of Rosie was much reduced this time and it only took 1 minute for the actual video to start.
Is it a web drama? Those usually have smaller budget than Tv dramas, and it would explain Taylor's own makeup and lack of nice hairstyle, unless the director decided that that's what stereotypical American girl looks like - bad hair and a hoodie. She's wearing her usual makeup, and yikes do those bulging under-eye bags look weird in non-edited video. Her lips and cheeks look different shape from her own videos too. In the hostorical costume she looks cuter, probably because of the bangs.
It would be interesting if she actually talked about why she finds her life more meaningful nowadays. She only said general phrases and didn't explain or say anything specific, even though she always goes specific when talking about some other topics no matter how boring it is. It kind of makes me think that she's just faking it. Or she just doesn't want to admit "'hey, I'm rich and lazy, and now I can just do whatever I want without any obligations, and I love having such life" because it doesn't seem meaningful enough for the image she tries to project. At least it would be truthful, and many people could like her simply for being honest - btw, that seems like a new trend on youtube because some newer not-established youtubers are gaining consistent views and people like them just for being honest(and pretty) and not 'as stuck up lying bitches as those sponsored popular youtubers'. So that's a new trend Taylor could actually benefit from if she jumps on it now while it's still gaining popularity and people want to see it.
English is not my first language either, so I'm sorry if I misunderstood. I meant that because of the quality of the product the price can be critisized. Like, it's expensive because of certain ingredients but if it's not a good product, then it's just not worth the money. That's why reviews that show how the product looks and stays throughout the day are helpful for not rich people.
I really dislike the current trend of caking your face with contouring and highlighting on top of several layers of foundation and concealer. It only looks good in front of professional lights and adjusted brightness of a camera. In real life it's just incredibly obvious and makes people look like clowns. No wonder that most people who do such makeup never show videos of themselves outside and in public.
She didn't exactly compare them, she said that for the way they look and stay throughout the day, they were not worth so much money and there're cheaper alternatives that look better and stay longer. Just because makeup is eco-friendly and super natural ingredient, people don't have to lie about its quality and say they like it and worth such price. You could see how bad it looked after only several hours, not even the whole day. Not all companies make good decorative cosmetics, even if their skincare is really good. That's why I like Tati's reviews - she wears the makeup for the day and shows how it looks at different time and whether it's actually long-lasting. That is helpful for people who were doubting whether to spend extra money just because a brand is famous. Not just Lush or The body shop, but drugstore and high-end brands as well.
